Cedar Shake Roofing
Very piece of cedar shake roofing is individually hand-cut, rather than mass-produced on an assembly line. This leads to more variation and non-uniform pieces, and while this often adds to the aesthetic of your home to provide a more rustic look, experienced installation is a must. If done improperly, the different-sized pieces can expose your roof to any number of gaps and leaks. Crown Exteriors will ensure that your roof is water-tight the first time, so you can relax and enjoy your new roof.
